WORLD5 ARE WINNERS OF THIS MONTHS CROSS COUNTIES RADIO MUSICIANS ALLIANCE AWARD

Picture

"WOW" was what I said when I first heard this unsigned band ... I can't believe we did'nt pick-up on them earlier - and it was no thanks to a lazy computer that nearly forgot to let us know their demo had a arrived sometime last year.

However, not even the Gremlins could stop fate from placing WORLD5 as the CCR 2 Unsigned Members Music Allience 'Musicians of the Month'. An accolade they deserve for craftmanship of both their writing and performance. Anyone who loves an 80's AOR sound, then you're in for a treat - I got a real sense of Bruce Hornsby collaberating with Hall and Oates - an unlikley supergroup I know, but I think if those two groups were jamming together, you might get something very similar. Well done guy's - You're getting high rotation all month on CCR 2 and a certificate is on its way to you. Check them out at www.world5music.com

Skope Magazine

World5 is a talented bunch of musicians taking the world by storm with their brand new singles: “Maybe There’s A Way” and “Man Of Action”.  The group’s previous releases included the single “You And I” along with their album ‘Global Experience’.  The new songs are beyond catchy, which further proves that World5 is a force to be reckoned with in the music world. 

The players on “Maybe There’s A Way” and “Man of Action” include: Grammy Award Winner Pat Hunt on lead vocals, piano and keyboards, Randy Miller on bass & vocals, Steffen Goeres on lead & acoustic guitars, trumpet & flugelhorn, Stephan Goessl on saxophone and Raimund Breitfeld on drums & percussion.  Just recently Stephan Goessl left the band and so the newest addition to World5 is Texan guitarist Joe Gavito.  World5’s sound is extremely polished to the point where you can actually hear the hard-earned experience on both songs.  As a complete unit, World5 is absolutely in charge by giving you a commanding performance with the potential audience giving their undivided attention.  On the first installment, “Maybe There’s A Way”, one will bear witness to a highly resourceful Pop/Rock ballad with Adult Contemporary smiling in the background.  I couldn’t help but notice a stylistic similarity to that of the awesome band Chicago on this number.  World5 played their hearts out on this one with plenty of feeling taking over the spot and the backdrop of rock blending in perfectly.  The way Pat Hunt sings on “Maybe There’s A Way” and also the fine playing from the rest of the band makes for one enjoyable listening experience.  On the next track “Man of Action”, World5 is turning it up a bit by going with a more upbeat tempo.  The song has such a lively & positive tone that is absolutely contagious.  If “Man Of Action” doesn’t make you feel good inside then I don’t know what will! That Soft Rock ‘n’ Pop sensation is still very much in place with World5 stealing the show on “Man Of Action”.   Both songs are based on relationships and the sentiment is delivered & depicted in such a way that is easily relatable to the listeners. 

“Maybe There´s a Way”

“Man Of Action”
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yy260pAEu0I

“After listening to both “Maybe There’s A Way” & “Man Of Action”, I am convinced that World5 is a powerhouse group that deserves major recognition.  I really do feel that World5 would have been a fantastic classic rock group back in the day but currently they are a fine-tuned, music making machine made up of all the necessary parts to help World5 operate at a high level.  Those distinct parts include: well-versed instrumentation and top-of-the-line singing, ear-catching & relevant material that draws you in and don’t forget the striking elements of Pop/Rock/AC as well as the almighty Ballad.  This is World5 in a nutshell and this is what makes the band so darn great.  Their songs and their music stand out in a humongous way so watch out for this World5 as they hit the scene.  You can purchase the singles “Maybe There’s A Way” & “Man Of Action” online at iTunes & Amazon and you can also find out more about World5 on their website.

Pat

 

Having worked in the music industry for more than 40 years, Pat Hunt is what you might call a veteran musician. He's contributed to four Grammy Award-nominated albums and one Grammy award-winning album, and has opened for well-known artists such as Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and theTemptations in the 1980s.
Despite his success, Hunt said something just didn't feel right. He struggled with drugs, alcohol and a feeling of emptiness before dedicating his life to God in 1987. Hunt dedicated his musical talents to God and soon after began serving as a church worship leader.
"In 1993, I started serving in my first church as a worship leader, and 10 years later, I was ordained," he said. "I've been doing this as a full-time vocation for the past 14 years."
In 2003, Hunt joined the staff of Parkway Fellowship Church, where he serves as worship pastor.
"My favorite thing, Sunday morning, leading worship, is just watching people out there worshipping and giving it their all, and knowing that you are, in some way, helping to usher people's relationship with the Lord," he said.
Hunt is also the lead singer and keyboardist for the world concept band World5, which consists of five members who collaborate from their homes in the United States, New Zealand, Sweden and Germany. The band's sophomore album, "Man of Action," is due to be released this fall, and the title track is currently in the top 200 on the U.S. music charts.
When he's not busy fulfilling his duties as worship pastor at Parkway Fellowship Church or working on World5's sophomore album, Hunt enjoys golfing and spending time with his wife, singer Tareva Henderson; daughter; and granddaughter.

WORLD5 Releases Single "Man Of Action"

Email: smccauley@mondotunes.com
Website: http://www.mondotunes.com

The pop rock ensemble known as World5 (often stylized as WORLD5) have released their newest single, titled, “Man of Action.” The song is the first published single from their forthcoming 2013 LP release, due out in autumn. The song is an extremely catchy, jubilant track with expert instrumentation and brilliant songwriting in terms of both composition and lyrical flair. It is perhaps most important for fans of World5 because it represents the public introduction of recent additions to the band, Grammy-Award winners Pat Hunt (lead vocals) and Randy Miller (bass guitar), both of whom are instant mainstays of “Man of Action's” overall sound and style.

 This overarching sound has at its core the songwriting principles of legends such as Genesis, Yes, and The Beatles, whom World5 names as main influences, but the immediate sonic experience of “Man of Action” shares more in common with other great musicians. One hears upon pressing play a rock 'n' roll piano that brings to mind Elton John's “Bennie and the Jets,” or Billy Joel's “Big Shot.” Riding these youthfully insistent keys are the lead vocals of World5 newcomer, Pat Hunt. Hunt's vocals powerfully drive and command the song without dominating it. The timbre and slick classiness of his flawless delivery is perhaps best compared to the buoyant and masculine singing of Huey Lewis.

 Complimenting these booming, shining features is Randy Miller's bass work, which lies somewhere between the way-out-front, slap style of late disco-era bassists and the quietly confident work of Gail Ann Dorsey (longtime David Bowie session player). Also integral to the success of World5's sound are a brass section that hasn't been utilized in this gorgeous capacity since The Joe Jackson Band, a funky, beautifully bright-sounding rhythm guitar not unlike the guitar groove made famous by The Jackson 5, and lead guitaring that has the unpretentious, yet spotlight-drawing character of Neil Young.

 It needs little explaining that World5's first single from their up-and-coming 2013 LP is promising amazing things, as well as demonstrating that these large promises are, without a doubt, certain to be fulfilled.

 “Man of Action” by World5 is available online worldwide 12 March 2013.
